  • It fills me up for at least 2-3 hours.
  • Aw, you inspired me to put up a real picture - it's not great but it will do.
  • Waah! Missed that, thanks.
  • http://www.southrivermiso.com is a good source for raw, unpasteurized miso. It's...different.
  • Wow wow WOW!! I am peanut butter and jealous.

  • I'm late but I'm glad you found something you like - and welcome to Goneraw!
  • There are definitely some recipes that have that "THIS is raw???" quality, but if someone is a committed SAD eater, you may be disappointed if your hub doesn't find it an acceptable substitute for a favorite food of his. He might like it - but not a…
  • Another vote for Cuisinart FP. Mine is at least 20 years old and no problems whatsoever. Of course they probably aren't as good as they used to be!

  • "If eating animals is bad, why is it ok to drive cars and kill them with pollution and take away their habitats by building roads, houses, etc, thus killing them by taking away their habitats??" It isn't OK, of course. Who says it is? Of course we s…
    in probiotics?? Comment by Suasoria
  • I think this is fantastic. I'm not a parent but three of my friends who have toddlers have all been told that their kid is in a low weight "percentile." Only one of these families is even vegan. The other two are omnis, but avoid processed foods and…
  • I *mostly* agree with Kellyanne too (except that raw fruits/veggies get stuck in my teeth like nobody's business, which I'm sure is TMI). The only thing I want to add is that the government RDAs for calcium are based on a Standard American Diet, whi…
  • Welcome. I'm a fan of practical, "bite sized" approaches that seem do-able. For example, if you had fruit for breakfast, a salad with lots of veggies for lunch, raw nuts/raisins and maybe a Larabar as a snack, plus whatever might be a regular dinner…
  • I'm with Alexa - the middle ground is good. Fake/forced is not good. I appreciate people who are authentic, even if I don't agree with them all the time. Being real is not the same thing as being rude - but when people don't want to hear what's real…
  • Be that as it may, taking a B12 supplement is one of those things I do just to be on the safe side. I don't need a blood test to tell me that it's a good thing to have around. The risks and effects of B12 deficiency are too great to gamble. As we ag…
  • ^^ Pretty much what Miki says. There's something to be said for eating seasonally. In the heat of summer is when all the sweet juicy fruit abounds. This time of year it's hard squashes and root veggies, many of which are traditionally cooked, so we …
  • Yep, that sounds right - sour, lemony, almost spoiled tasting. What about thinning it with a little extra water and maybe a lemon wedge? And make some cheese! http://thesunnyrawkitchen.blogspot.com/2008/04/not-cheeze-pleaze.html
  • I agree too - it may be the nuts themselves. Ours lasts 3-5 days in the fridge (assuming we don't finish it before that).

  • I love cole slaws too - shredded cabbage, spiralized carrots, diced tomato, cucumber, and whatever, sprouts, sesame or sunflower seeds in a dressing of nama shoyu, ACV and agave syrup.
    in any salad ideas? Comment by Suasoria
  • Same as Lyn_goes_green here - used to NEED COFFEE and now I am so glad to be over that. I do love good coffee, and can have a cup or two when I feel like it just to be sociable. (More than two wrecks me especially on an empty stomach.) I always have…
    in COFFEE Comment by Suasoria
  • If there are particular symptoms or issues you're trying to manage, consider keeping a food journal so you can track whether anything is changing for you, or how you react to certain foods. But as Eecho mentions I don't think you "decide" what path …
  • There's some great advice up there - including setting the example and helping them have access to healthier choices. I would also make them aware that you may go through some "raw emotions" as you move forward...and make sure YOU understand that th…
    in Any good advice? Comment by Suasoria
  • If loving tomatoes is wrong, I don't want to be right. I think it's my all-time favorite food.
    in tomatoes! Comment by Suasoria
  • No advice, but what a great idea!
    in Carrot Pulp Comment by Suasoria
  • Corn chips? They have a sweetness that would be similar to onion bread (though corn isn't in season anymore, really).
  • This one comes out well for me http://goneraw.com/node/12769 The salsa I make is easy to remember because it's theoretically one of everything - one small onion, one giant tomato, one clove garlic, one jalapeno, one bunch cilantro, juice of one lime…
  • The date guy at my farmers market says about six months in the fridge.
    in Storing Dates Comment by Suasoria
  • Brontesaurus, I really want to thank you for bringing this up. I've also noticed this "trend" and I appreciate your thoughts on using caution when dispensing advice. I definitely agree with you that the number of members with EDs seems to be increas…
  • I'm more interested in your psychological attractions to certain foods, and your perception of eating a healthy vegan or raw diet as deprivation. So that's what I'd be meditating on, as it were. Honestly I eat whatever I want, pretty much whenever I…

  • KALE CHIPS. OMFG. Other easy and tasty recipes are onion bread, flax crackers, and corn chips. But really, it's such a fun toy...and even something you mess up at first will probably be worth eating.
  • I keep the seeds in the fridge and the ground flax in a baggie in the freezer. I don't know why. Someone told me that and I believed them!
